40 Ravensdowne

Berwick-Upon-Tweed

A Georgian Grade Two Listed Town House

"Located within the Elizabethan town walls and therefore an easy walk into the centre, but also backing onto a golf course and, beyond that, only a couple of minutes' walk to the coast. Barbara Pentecost of Smith Gore, admires this quiet, gently sloping street both for its fabulous location and its' glorious Georgian houses."
